    60F

    Fits

    Pawie Oka (Peacock Eye) is a discontinued CH from late 2011.
    The bra itself is smooth purple satin. It's shimmery and soft, it feels plushy and the band is really nice against my skin. It's not quite as deep purple as it appears in photographs, but it also isn't muted like 65E - Ewa Michalak » Ch Lawenda (588). It's somewhere between the two in shade.
    The trim along the cups and the band is where the name comes from. It is comprised of purple circles the same color as the bra, but inside this circle is an "eye", like a peacock feather. It's a shimmery silver teal ... that is very beautiful in person. Frankly I never noticed in photographs, but it was the first thing I picked up on when the bra was in my hands. It's hard to photograph, and I posted the best two that I could get but they still don't really show just how much that little eye contrasts with the purple. It really makes the bra in my opinion.

    This is a 60 band that I could stretch to about 27.75 before I started distorting the wires. This is good for me, but it's fitting just a tad tighter than I want it to at this time of year. You can see the hooks kind of pulling in my picture, so I'm wearing it with a single column of an extender. I can wear it comfortable on the loosest hook, but I'd rather not.
    The straps are partially adjustable and stretchy. They're not the most comfortable even though they are well padded in the front. I feel like they dig into my traps more than they should. As noted in PetiteCollegiate's review of this same bra, the straps are very wide set. Normally this isn't an issue for me, I have broad shoulders and a wide upper chest, but these ones actually feel like they may slip off my shoulders at times. They've not, but being so wide set and so slippery I'm aware of them always.
    The wires are narrow goodness. They're scaled down well and are low under the arm.
    The cups are soft and comfortable. They give a nice projected and heaving shape. The cups are a little floppy like my 75D - Ewa Michalak » Ch Toffik (138). I think this is a foam thing as other older CHs are described as having the soft cups. I bet Ewa now uses a firmer foam which is why the shape is so much more dramatic in the newer bras than in the older ones.
    That's not to say that the shape in the older CH/Ps is bad or not uplifting, it just isn't as "strapped in" as the newer bras.

    Didn't fit

    I really love the style and color of this bra! There will never be enough purple bras in the world. That being said, it's not a perfect fit. The straps are obnoxiously long and stretchy (they're the half adjustable comfort type). Also, this particular bra has no pockets for pads, so cups gape at certain angles because I don't have a lot of upper fullness naturally (the rounded shape you see in the pictures is a polish miracle). The straps are very wideset on this model and they sort of attack my armpits and the gore is higher than that of my CH Karmelki. It's just tall enough ... to slip into the ditch at the top of my sternum and be very stabby. I definitely think Ewa has come a long way each season in her designs and the quality of her work. While this is still a gorgeous bra with a comfy band and great projected shape, it doesn't work quite as well as the more recent ones I have. The band is true to size and stretches exactly to 28 inches.

    This bra has convinced me that I do need the CHP Klaudyna (and SM Czarna Mgielka and S Letnia Noc), so eventually I'll be able to compare her newest ones! I have no self control and need bracoholics anonymous... at least it's a loving community of addicts here https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":p" />

      PetiteCollegiate , where are you GETTING all these discontinued EM's and cuts??? Making me (your fellow braholic) jealous...already have the ones I like from the current line up (OK, some of them anyway) but I hunger for CH's and the 'ones that got away'. Pawie Oka looks terrific on you btw, great color!

    • I got the past 3 I've reviewed here from vesela_krava! :) I feel the same way about a lot of her styles! They're available for such a short time. And thank you! I love purple everything :)

    • Oooh I would love that if it were true! Tbh I just spend too much time stalking the listing section here and on reddit. Especially this summer when I had one of the more boring jobs in existence :P

    Didn't fit

    I have a full review of this bra on my blog but it was based on the 75HH (34HH). I found the band of that bra a bit loose so I returned it and reordered a band size down, so the 70J (32J). This bra is extremely tight in the band and the cups seem smaller than the HH, although they should be the same if the sister sizing rule applies.

    This bra is utterly gorgeous though and I can put up with it being a bit tight if it means my boobs can look as amazing as they do in this!

    Feel free to have a read of my blog post for more information.

    60F

    Fits

    This is an older CH style in a beautiful, royal purple color. It has gorgeous, scalloped lace around the cups with a pale turquoise shimmer. The lace really makes the style. This bra really does offer the narrow wires and incredible forward and immediate projection that CH is known for. It’s like a tray for boobs! This is my first CH style, and the closest thing I have tried is 60FF - Ewa Michalak » Chp Klaudyna (747). Klaudyna felt a bit roomy, so I wanted to try a half cup in 60F.

    I have somewhat mixed feelings about the fit. It kind of looks small? But ... I think it might be just because of the low coverage. This is quite literally a half cup! I’m not really quadding, except over the center gore which always happens because my boobs are desperate to be together. The cups are very open and accommodate upper fullness. The wires are incredibly perfect! This bra gives me quite a ridiculous cakes-on-a-plate cleavage.

    This is the tightest Ewa 60 band I have tried so far, although it’s a used bra. It feels snug but comfortable on my 26" ribcage. The straps are only partially adjustable but they work well for my somewhat low-set breasts, and I like the material used. The straps are quite wide set as well. The gore tacks and it’s lovely and doesn’t poke my boobs.

    All of the materials are super soft, and the bra is extremely comfortable. The only problem I have really is that if I lean over, there’s a lot of tissue falling out of the bra. The bottom of the cup becomes empty at the same time. Maybe I don’t need this much immediate projection? In the end I think that I feel more secure in Comexim plunges or Ewa’s S style, which offer a bit more coverage and support. (This sounds really boring!). I think that I could keep this and wear very comfortably, but I don’t know. I think that it might nevertheless suit somebody else better. (If this was burgundy, I’d never let it go.)

      immodestmouse You were faster than I could write the listing. :D

    • I have the same issue with the CH/P styles, if they don't gape, I feel like they are too small or low coverage and I can't even begin to wear them with cookies. If I size up I get gaping even with the cookies. Yet somehow Comexim 3HC's work for me, maybe the Comexims are a bit taller cup height.

    • amandafire Yeah I think so, I have one Comexim halfcup and it's definitely taller. I guess that the CH/Ps might not be the best style for me either. :/

      not everyone likes the projection and low coverage of the CH cut. I think it fits good but I understand you don't feel comfortable in this bra. Pawie oka is probably the most projected CH bra, it caused a serious jiggle on me.

    The band could be a bit less stretchy, otherwise the bra is excellent. I butchered the straps since they are way too short, but I don't recognize that as a fitting issue as altering the straps is really easy and doable at home.

    Holy. #%^*.
    I don't think I'll be able to wear this bra out in public; I'd be too busy feeling myself up and staring at my cleavage. Seriously, I did not know my boobs could look like this. This bra right here has made my bra journey of the past few months to find my correct size worth it.
    After the *epic* failures of every padded half-cup bra I ever tried on (mostly Freyas), I was sure this bra wouldn't work, but for $23 USD, I figured this lightly used bra was worth a shot. Boy, am I ever glad I tried it. Yet again, I see no reason to ... buy a bra of a different brand ever again (besides Cleo Lucy (5851) and identically constructed cousins, like Panache Sienna (4471)). This lingerie designer is a genius.
    I love the quality of this bra. The satin straps are a nice touch, and being only partially adjustable isn't a problem for me. The lace curls a little at the bottom, but I got it second-hand, so not surprising.

    Name means "peacock's eye" in English.

    Didn't fit

    I was so excited to finally get this 'dream bra'! It matches my expectations in a number of ways. It's purple, a deep blue-toned purple, like darkest lilacs. It's satiny-silky; almost iridescent. Subtle but intriguing round lace trim with blue highlights are the Peacock's Eye of the name. The outer fabric is oddly generous, there is quite a bit of wrinkling in it which smooths down under clothing. It's a CHP, my best shape for lift and immediate projection. The band is not too tight - in fact, the bra is used enough that the band, for a 70, stretches so much I'm on the 3rd set ... of hooks immediately (may have to take in the band) but right now is comfy & still supportive. Where it missed on 'perfect dream' is that the straps are way too wide-set even for my broad shoulders. And it is too large in the cups, lots of extra room in the top. My best EM's are F/FF so I guess my lack of top fullness has been offset by the smaller size compressing and lifting my breasts! I pretty much fixed the strap and extra room at the top problems with a single simple alteration: the 'fold & sew' strap adjustment that I read about here. What a difference - I can now say it fits with a good scoop & swoop! (It has cookie pockets but came to me without cookies; adding them helps). Moving the straps in about an inch pulled the top of the cup tauter, got the straps out of my armpits, and does not seem to have any ill effect on the fit or shape.

    I love it! Pretty typical EM CH shape, except that the foam is pretty soft (compared to my CH Onyks), which is a bit more comfortable, but also a tiny bit less wa-wa-woom-shapey.
    The straps are padded on the front, similar to Cleo Juna, which is awesome if you get problems with the straps in other CHs.
    The band seems to run normal, but I got it used so I can't really say.
    The fabric is shiny on the outside, but it has a cotton lining on the inside.

    It fits very well, but the band is a little loose one me so I had to use the middle hook to begin with. I like it without the pads best, because with them I feel ginormous (the pads give the bra a Very rounded shape when on). It's comfortable, love the projection.
